He talks about the keycaps some here:

I'm guessing the new boards and the caps will be happening at the same time. 


Yes that's correct.

Yes that's correct.

Eagerly waiting for the new thick blank PBT keycaps and Matias' new innovation about stabilizers for Alps keycaps - hope it has good backward compatibility.

And hope you're aware of the new Alps clones manufacturers in China - I am a supporter of the original SKCM and SKCL 'pine' design, just saying.
Wishlist: 1) hotswap gasket mount; 2) nice Alps blank caps; 3) Hipro Iris with adjustable tenting; 4) CNC POM case
More
Wishful-list: 1) All POM; 2) We order from keyboard-layout-editor.com; 3) Usable Trackpoint MK
IBM M13 black
IBM SpaceSaver II
IBM KPD8923 Trackpoint
Choc mini Gateron black
PLUM 84 'Topre-clone' 55g Korean dome
HHKB Pro 2 HasuBT
[It's not I don't like ISO, but I need the HHKB backspace... only ~90WPM, in love with Emacs, and Lisp]

Any updates on the keycaps? I would really love thick pbt keycaps for the custom keyboard I'm putting together right now.

The ABS keycaps on my 6 year old Mini Quiet Pro are getting awfully shiny now...  ;)
